Layout with The Wild Hare Kits kit

Hi there lovelies and happy Friday!! Last month I had the honour of doing a guest design team gig over at the Wild Hare Kit kit club and I loved it! I noticed that I´ve really missed scrapbooking alot! And now I just cannot stop scrapping..

So, therefore even if my GDT month is gone, I´ve still got some papers left from my Deluxe Kit and I am using them all up. So be prepared for a few more layouts to come. And besides, we took like 4000 Fotos on our vacation to Brazil last summer, so there is plenty to scrap about still.

Here is my latest layout:

I did a bit of fussy cutting and also punched circles and butterflies for the page and alighned all the bits and bobs along the patterned paper edges. But before I adhered everything on place, I gave the background a Glimmer Mist treatment with Gold And Aquamarine tones. I also sneaked some stamp images onto the background (stamp by VivaLasVegaStamps). Very light and subtle stamping.

To get the journaling stand out a bit better from the leafy background paper, I applied some gesso with a paint brush to the area I wanted to have my journaling on. That way it´s more readable. That´s it for today. Since I´ve been scrapping so much, my white cardstock stack has reduced dramatically 🙂 … time to order some more, I think! It feels so good to be back at scrapping again. I also noticed that I´m adding much more journaling to the pages at the moment, feeling the need to put the words down on paper. Recording and documenting those memories!

See you soon with another layout maybe!

Two more layouts with the Wild Hare Kits

Hi there and welcome to my final GDT post with The Wild Hare Kits January hand-curated kit. Today I´ve got two more layouts to share with you. I promise, these will be the last ones. I still have some papers left over, but it´s mainly smaller pieces, so I´ll be adding those to future tag and card projects, I guess.

Here is the first layout share:

For this layout I again stenciled the background with the Shell stencil and Distress Oxide Inks. I´ve also added plenty of stamping around the photos, the stamp is by Viva Las Vega Stamps – I think this one is by Dee Dee Catron. I love her designs there!

As you can see, I´ve used only a little bit of paper on this layout. I mainly punched leaves from the „A Box of Crayons“ collection papers by Shimelle for this page. I used my Punch-All-Over-The-Page punch here. Then I fussy cut some flowers and fruits from the same papers and arranged them into clusters onto the page. The „happy thoughts“ banner is from my own stash, but it matched the theme so well, that I added it there.

The „Perfect“ cutfile is again from my Silhouette Studio Cutfile collection and I misted it with Tattered Angels Aquamarine Glimmer Mist to better match the background stenciling. On this particular day we visited the Sugarloaf in Rio de Janeiro with the cable car. Boy, did we have some amazing views from there and a gorgeous sunset. I am still pinching myself hat we actually were there and saw it all. It truly was a once-in-a-lifetime type of vacation for us. Maybe one day we can visit again and I can see my dear friend, who lives there, again.

And this is my final layout:

For the final layout I used plenty of papers again. I created a quilt type of background from paper squares. Some are lined up next to each other, others overlappingly and some on top of other pieces. This way there is much for the eye to see and wander across the page. Here, again, I´ve added same type of stenciling. I adore the look this stencil creates.

I´ve again added a title with Thickers, some Glimmer Mist splatters here and there, some bits and pieces from my own stash for additional decor and finished the page off with lots of journaling. I want to record all the experiences we had, because in a few months time, the memories become more blurry and you cannot recall all details anymore. So it´s a good time to put the words on paper now.

That´s it folks! This was my guest design team month with The Wild Hare Kits and I had a ball with the kit! I created a total of 7 layouts and a minibook. And a few cards too, but I didn´t count those, as I´ve mixed so many other products onto those, so they really cannot be counted as solemly kit related projects.

I would like to thank Alison for giving me this opportunity to be part of her team. It´s been a real pleasure!!! And I can honestly recommend the Wild Hare Kits to you – they do a great work curating kits for their customers. If you haven´t tried them out by now, you definitely should!!!

Thanks for a great crafty month!
